Is the ignitor glowing? If not, change the ignitor, if yes, change the gas valve coil.

Any ideas as to why gas valve wont open


Usually that the thermocouple is worn out. It is a small metal tube that sits in the flame and tells the gas valve that the pilot is alight and hot and the valve can be opened. Call in a gas technician.

Troubleshooting nexgrill charcoal gas grill


did you replace the battery in the igniter?
less than 100 degrees indicates a safety has engaged, close gas valve, open burner valves.....wait 5 minutes. keep lid open, close burner valves, open gas valve until you hear the regulator click
turn on "ignition burner" and ignite (with switch or at specified port).
After this part is lit open other burners one at a time , waiting until each lights before opening the next.

I have a bryant gas furnace M#:395cav036055acja. I can hear the gas valve open but theres no gas flow. I can also see the ignitor light and then cycle off after several restarts. Do i need a new gas valve...


The first thing I would do is to shut valve off on gas supply line and remove fitting and nipple that screws directly into the gas valve. There should be a fine mesh screen in the gas inlet. Make sure it is clean and not obstructing gas flow. Use teflon tape and/or pipe joint compound on all threaded fittings when you reassemble. When you have everything tight except the union you can slightly open gas valve to make sure you have gas to that point.After you finish tightening all fitting turn gas valve back on and check for leaks.
You can put a few drops of dish soap on each threaded fitting to check for leaks. If soap bubbles then you have a leak. Repair leak and see if furnace will fire. If you are sure you have gas to gas valve and you can hear valve trying to open but still no flame I would replace gas valve.

Good luck and I hope this helps you some. Thank you

Gas Dryer


There is a flame sensor that senses when the ignitor is hot enough to light the gas. If the flame sensor is bad the gas valve won't open. It also might be the valve itself. There are 2 coils that must open for the gas to get through the valve. If one of the coils is bad the valve won't open.
